Articles from ConservativeHome and the Times 05.06.21

Britain has reached a trade deal with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein that will cut tariffs on a range of exports, it was announced yesterday. The department of trade said that duties of up to 277 per cent on certain types of cheese would be eliminated under the deal. There are also reductions in tariffs and quotas on pork, poultry and as well as shrimps, prawns and haddock. Exports between Britain and the three countries — that are outside the EU’s customs union — can be done using digital documents, contracts and signatures, the Department for International Trade said. Liz Truss, the trade secretary, said the deal was good for all countries and was the first to include dedicated chapters on digital trade and small businesses.
